Welcome to Saskatchewan!
The Saskatchewan members of Holstein Canada take pride in hosting the 2022 Holstein Convention and Annual General Meeting. In planning the 2022 Convention, the committee considered many ideas to ensure visitors take home a taste of Saskatchewan. The festivities will begin in Saskatoon and Regina with an ice breaker on Wednesday evening. Farm tours will leave from Regina and Saskatoon on Thursday morning. Later in the day you will arrive at the fairgrounds for a ‘Taste of Saskatchewan’ event as well as the Holstein Sale. The Holstein Show will take place on Friday, followed by an entertaining social and ‘Tailgate & Dance in the Dirt Party’. On Saturday it’s business at the AGM and celebrating at the Master Breeder Awards Gala!
As we will be showcasing top of the line Holstein cows and dairy operations, it will present you with insight into dairying on the prairies. Taking in the tours and experiencing Saskatchewan produced food and drinks will provide a taste of life as a flatlander.
We look forward to welcoming you to our province. Saskatchewan has hosted two previous conventions, the first one in 1992 and again in 2005. The industry has evolved to fewer and larger farms, as it has throughout the world. This is an exciting time! Many of the farms have transitioned to the next generation and you will have the opportunity to meet the current stewards of the industry.
See you in April 2022!
Chairman, 2022 National Holstein Convention
